Question about Refrigerators

HOTPOINT 8596 keeps running

The compressor is going all the time, but the freezer only reaches -11 C, and the freezer temp alarm is flashing. The fridge seems to be fine. Also it seems to take a very long time to reduce the temp.

Thanks Ed

Look under the unit to see if the condenser ciol is dirty..This is most likely the problem.. sweep it out with a vac. and temps should go back to normal let me know if that is not it.

I have a hotpoint FF72P fridge freezer. it comes down to temperature (-22/+4) without any problem, but after this the compressor won't cut in.


takes time for the temperature inside the fridge -freezer to normalize after doors are being left open

turning off a fridge freezer on and off wont help it

it takes time to for the thermostat to kick start the compressor
and more time to reach the freezing temp lost

if you are certain the thermostat is damaged
call in a service man
have the thermostat replaced and have them check
the gas in the system is running the correct pressure

Samsung Fridge freezer - switches on fine. reaches correct temps .. turns off .. and then dont come back on again HELP HELP HELP


Hallo

It could be the compressor winding's starting to cause it not to start up after running for a while because the drier is blocked and when the drier is blocked it will start running in a vacuum causing it to spark(burn) on the inside of the compressor or could still be in a vacuum and causes it to spark when it should start.

My sub zero service light and EC 24 are flashing, fridge is getting warmer...suggestions?


The ec 24 alarm is from a sensor that is located behind the freezer wall and connects to the control board in the ref. When the temp gets to a certain point the sensor will trip giving the alarm. If the temperature in the freezer is gone up but is around the 20 -30 degree F range, I would remove the grate that covers the compressor and check to see if the fan is running and if the coils are dirty. Either one of those can cause temps to go up. If the fan is running and the coils are clean, Call a service company because you possibly have a sealed system issue

WHIRLPOOL NO-FROST REFRIG/FREEZR MODEL-EHT201ZKWR5


looks like operating normally...

the fridge as it reaches it's temperature shuts the compressor off and then after a few minutes..the fridge would increase temperature again and would turn back the compressor again.

its the thermostat which is cutting on and off the compressor.

and i think it is normal. based on the temperatures that you indicated..it is cooling very well..0 F in the freezer and 40 in the refrigerator... that's good.

FFA60 Hotpoint fridge/freezer Red warning light


if i read the english right, the compressor runs but the freezer fan only runs for a short time. no fan then no cooling. there is a fan stat so that the fan only runs when the evap is down to temp. this may be faulty. also on some hotpoint, the fan switches off when door opened. check door switch operating ok. this may also explain problem with fridge lamp
